Hunting, Camping May Change With Proposed Federal Cuts

Camping, hunting and hiking experiences in Wyoming would likely change if Forest Service budget cuts under the U-S House Republican budget proposal became final.  Former Forest Service Chief Dale Bosworth.

“road maintenance, trail maintenance, campgrounds, habitat improvement for things like elk and deer. What I’m really concerned about on this is that the Forest Service has been so underfunded for so long, and now, looking at more reductions, they’re just not going to be able to meet the expectations of people”

Bosworth points out that cuts to the Forest Service have been part of a long-term trend, and are hamstringing the agency from doing its job to keep forests healthy and accessible.

He’s hopeful that the U-S Senate will find ways to reverse the budget squeeze on National Forests, and bolster programs that promote collaboration in problem-solving, forest restoration work, and rural jobs.  He adds that the House Appropriations Subcommittee Chair, Representative Mike Simpson (R-Idaho),  did help limit some of the proposed cuts
